Can somone identify my Blue tongue skink?

Postby sidneymarek » Mon Dec 18, 2017 1:07 am

Hello everyone, I was wondering if somone can help me identify my BTS, I got her from a local pet store because I fell in love with her. She’s about 16 inches long and a little over a year old, she looks like some Indonesian species and I don’t really know which one!
Thanks a lot!

Pretty skink!

It looks to have part Kei Island blood from the dotted texture.. Interesting! While I can't say specifically - I agree that she's some form (or mix) Indonesian :D Hopefully someone has a better idea

I would venture to say full-blooded Kei Island, Tiliqua gigas keyensis.
